I guess that is the point! If "they", whom I assuming is the ownership group for US bank Arena, is making a good amount of money, then let them make the investment for any return.

It just doesn't make sense to have taxpayers foot the bill for an arena that will house a minor league hockey team as it's anchor tenant. Not when the city has two major league teams. It might make sense in a town like Dayton that will never get a major league team and is/was looking to engineer revitalization in a specific area of Downtown.

Way too many wealthy people have their hands out asking for the rest of us to finance their risks--with none of the reward other than wearing a hometown jersey.
